What exactly is your reasoning behind the antivenin shortages?

:I caught one of the Snake Wrangler TV episodes the other night, and quite frankly, I was appalled. Some guy named Jim from Kentucky was road cruising for Mojave rattlers for a venom collection project. His fingers were absolutely mangled from past bites, which was totally understandable once you watched his technique. He jumped out of his vehicle barefoot, and simply had to pin and grab everything. At one point, he was actually holding a small Mojave behind the head while driving down the road. Fortunately, he only spotted a couple, because if they had been out in numbers, he would have probably been tagged again. Knowing all of the kids that watch these "experts", I really have to shake my head at this nonsense. Is anyone really surprised that we have these antivenin shortages these days?
